Abstract
Nitrogen (N) fertilizer prices have been high the past few years, and continue to be this fall.

Several factors are interacting to influence both supply and price. These include high natural gas price (main feedstock for manufacture of N fertilizer), closure of about one-quarter of the U.S.
